How far can a father go to make his daughter happy? Quite far, according to this surrealist, cool drama with its subtle humor, which carried away prizes San Sebastian.
Alicia is very ill. Her biggest wish is to get the original and extremely expensive dress from the Japanese anime series Magical Girl as a present. Luis, her father, is prepared to do anything to make her dream come true, meaning literally anything. He gets caught up in a web of shady blackmail to raise the money for the dress. His originally noble attempt to make his daughter happy fast degenerates into a tragic battle between paternal instinct and common sense. Mixed up in this curious web is Bárbara, a beautiful woman with peculiar preferences, and Damían, a retired teacher with a stormy past that just won”t lie down.
Circumstances, cruel coincidence and good intentions lead to situations in which the protagonists are more or less forced to trangress their moral boundaries – with far-reaching consequences.After the screening Sin Fin Cinema presents visitors a glass of Spanish red wine.
